Ease of Use: 
The lowest price: 25.46$
You can buy it at RegNow for that price.
Very easy to use. High coverting speed.
Bad design. Not optimized at all. Some bugs.

It looks like WinAVI is not optimized very well, because even on good pc CPU and RAM usage level is too high. For example, it takes 89% of CPU and 61% of RAM while I’m converting FLV video to AVI (Dual core 2.93 GHz and 2GB of RAM). On the other hand, converting speed is good enough. 6 minutes and I get DVD from AVI.

When I launched this soft for the first time, I was like:”Why it reminds me NERO”? WinAVI looks similar to it! All these rounded buttons and corners, CD’s on the background, even shortcuts are similar! The only good thing in design is that you can see main buttons on the top and you don’t have to explore all software’s options to find what you need.

I’ve tried to convert few different AVI videos to DVD and some of these DVDs now don’t have sound. Programmers should fix such huge bugs like that!


For 25$ you get software which is easy to use for non-advanced users and which has good converting speed if your computer is good enough. I don't recommend WinAVI to people who know something more about videos, converting etc.
